We stayed here for a night so we could do an afternoon wine tour with "Bubbly Grape", so we needed somewhere to park the car & leave our stuff before we were picked up at noon. Heather the owner was really helpful, not only telling us we could park our car but also that she would get our room prepared...

We've just visited Blenheim for the 3rd time in a couple of years from the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia, and once again stayed at Blenheim Palms Motel. Martin and Heather are so friendly and welcoming. The rooms are very clean, quiet, comfortable and really well appointed. It's just a short walk to town centre and nice eateries. We will...

We recently booked 3 rooms at the Blenheim palms motel for a two night family wine tasting trip. Heather greeted us with early check ins, lots of local tips, and fresh milk for our coffees. Great start and it just continued that way. The rooms were all excellent, exactly as advertised, and each one had lots of different little touches....

The staff here were really friendly on arrival, talking us through all of the main vineyards and tailoring it to what we told him we were looking for. The rooms offered everything we needed including a little kitchenette area and was nice and clean. The only downside was the bathroom which was a wetroom - not my personal preference, but...

We booked a Spa Pool Suite for 1 night. The room was spacious an comfortable. It contained more or less all amenities required and also a small kitchenette. The highlight of the room was the personal Spa Pool outside of the room, which worked well. The receptionist was also very helpful and gave us a few good tips. It was...

The room was clean and decor was gorgeous. Little touches like the Ecoya diffuser, plenty of towels and nice shower gel and shampoo made this room great value for money. There was a Sky box in our room with 50+ channels available which was nice. Bed was comfortable and staff lovely. Didn't want to leave.

Finishing the fortnight off. Lovely place to wind down. Bed good. Good selection of tea/coffee. Shower needs a dam built before you use it otherwise the water will flow out to kitchen. Other than that I will be back as each year we bike the graperide.

Morning Mike, thanks for taking the time to review our property. Have you secured a room for The Annual GrapeRide as we are full, but are happy to book a room for you at a nearby property. The wet room is just that - the bathroom does get wet but will not overflow because of the design of the floor,...
